Windows 7: Win7 taskbar buttons questions

Win7 taskbar buttons questions

Is there a limit to the number of buttons that you can have on your taskbar?

Why can't I add MS Outlook 2007 button?

I am running Win7 64-bit on a new hp p6240f w/8GB Memory and an Intel Q8300 quad-core chip. I have no problem adding buttons for other MS Office 2007 apps: Word, Excel, PowerPoint. But Outlook 2007 will not let me pin itself to the taskbar.

I have nine buttons already on the taskbar, including the other Office apps mentioned above.

I also seem to have a problem pinning several other apps to the taksbar. Do all of the pinned apps need to be 64-bit or can you pin 32-bit as well.

Any assistance or guidance will be most appreciated.

Thank you.

If no other way, you could add them via the Quick Launch bar or by adding a toolbar with a shortcut to the program(s).
